Puerto Rican Juror Says George Zimmerman “Got Away With Murder” [VIDEO]

 

George Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin in a court of law. However, the sole non-white juror in the case, juror B29 aka Maddy, has come forward to say that Zimmerman “got away with murder.”

Reports ABC News:

The only minority on the all-female jury that voted to acquit George Zimmerman said today that Zimmerman “got away with murder” for killing Trayvon Martin and feels she owes an apology Martin’s parents.

“You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty,” said the woman who was identified only as Juror B29 during the trial. “But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence.”

She said the jury was following Florida law and the evidence, she said, did not prove murder.

Robin Roberts interviewed Maddy for Good Morning America.  Maddy is a mother of eight, a nursing assistant and had just moved to Seminole County, Fla. from Chicago only five months before she was selected as a juror.

Maddy felt that the juries hands were tied because of the law. “George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can’t get away from God,” she said. “And at the end of the day, he’s going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with. [But] the law couldn’t prove it.”

Maddy believes she owes Trayvon Martin’s parents on apology. Since juror B37 came forward with her comments on the trial, four other jurors have come forward to dispute her claims. Maddy’s interview will be seen on ABC’s World News tonight (July 25) at 6:30 p.m. ET and on Nightline at 12:35 a.m. ET as well as Friday on Good Morning America at 7 a.m. ET

Watch a preview of the interview below. Full interview below.

Why didn’t she fight harder while deliberating? Why a press run, though?

    This baby-machine is looking to get paid, from the sounds of it. She needs to look up the definition of murder to understand why GZ did not “get away with murder”.

  • tre

    so the author of this article wished she fought harder to do what? you cant convict someone when the evidence doesnt prove a crime. as much as i want bad to come to zimmerman, if we start letting the government convict ppl with little to no evidence, we’ll end up with a lot of truly innocent people in jail.

    Why does this article leave out the part that she thought this case was NOT about race and should NOT have gone to trial?! Why is that? TELL THE TRUTH! The TRUTH will set you free!

  • goldenfour7

    Amazing how this author did NOT tell all with what this juror said! Amazing and goes to show how stupid and ignorant some people are. Keep IGNORING the TRUTH!

    Her words doesn’t mean anything, because she let a murderer back on the streets, so she doesnt have any sympathy from me. Don’t feel sorry now…. What if he killed you kid? She just wanted air time…chick you got it and noone cares what you say out of your mouth.

    I know first hand know first hand what Trayvon parents going through my eldest son would’ve been been 30. My family & I watched a man murdered a black baby without no remorse and that smirck on his face. I knew he was going to walk. Zimmerman father was a Judge his mother worked for the prison system. Angela Corey & all lawyers and the Zimmermans are colleagues. George puched a police officer in the face & never done a day in prison.The trial looked like a scripted reality show. Judge zimmerman called in his favors. The jurors was hand picked. Now this juror crawling out of the wood work expecting sympathy. She had the oppurtunity to do the right thing for the right reason. She let a murderer go free knowing the truth she has to live with it. My prayers are with Trayvon parents and family.JUSTICE DELAYED JUSTICE DENIED Zimmerman people released Trayvon lifeless body taking pictures of him taking his last breath
